Saturday evening Miss Marearette

forgetting that th best of good will al

As an expression of their good wishes
Mr. and Mrs. M archie were presented

A correspondent writing to a Golden'
dale paper says : "Never has the writer
Been The Dalles road in a better condi
tion for travel than this fall. Some work
was put on the road on the Columbia
side of the mountain, soon after the first
rains this fall, which put the grade in
very good shape." And this very fact
has been telling on the trade which has
come to this city from our neighbors
across the way. It requires a great deal
of work and constant attention . to keep
this road in any kind of a condition, the
sand duns causing much trouble, but it
nays in the long run, and, with the in
ducement of free ferriage given to wheat
do with his case." Long has he roamed
about with his nose in the air and hie
right there was none to dispute, but the
tables have turned and the place that
once knew him shall know him no more
forever, for "they've got him on their
list." He will not be raffled, neither
will he be re-tailed, nor sold for butter
(nor worse) ; but when that weapon that
is mightier than the sword (the broom
stick) is weilded in vengeance over bis
offensive hide, there'll not be enough of
him left to tell the tail. His days are
certainly numbered, and no more will he
be seen gracefully scaling the fence, for
he has committed his last offense, either
in public or sub rota.

167 Second St. THE DALLES, OR.
FREIGHT SLIGHTLY WRECKED.
Train Broke in Two and Tbree Wheat
Laden Cars Thrown From
One of those fortunate accidents,
wbejein but for the if, which means so
much, a serious and fatal catastrophe
must have taken place, occurred Saturday
night just after the west-bound freight
from Umatilla had passed the Summit.
The train had just twenty-five minutes
in which to reach The Dalles before the
passenger arrived, when a journal-box
broke, letting theHruck down and caus
ing the train to break in two aud three
cars loaded with wheat to leave the
track, piling up in a heap. Engineer
Ferguson, seeing that nothing else could
be done, sent a flagman back toward the
Summit and started on to The Dalles
with the forward part of the train. Just
as they reached Seufert'e, three miles
from town, the east-bound paseenger
made its appearance and was flagged,
when it backed down to the city and
was compelled to wait UDtil 8 o'clock
yesterday morning. In the meantime
the 3:30 and 7 o'clock west-bound trains
were flagged, and were also compelled to
wait until the track was cleared.
A large force of men from here, and in
fact all the workmen to be obtained,
were 6ent to the scene of the wreck, and
the work of clearing progressed rap
idly. Fortunately no lives were lost and the
loss to the company is Blight,being about
$300, barring the delay.
Trainmen, however, say that had the
accident occurred half a mile further
west, one of the worst wrecks ever
known on the road would have taken
place, as the steep down grade would
necessarily have added to trie disaster.
